t.p.memcache : module documentation

Part of twisted.protocols View Source

Memcache client protocol. Memcached is a caching server, storing data in the form of pairs key/value, and memcache is the protocol to talk with it.

To connect to a server, create a factory for MemCacheProtocol:
   from twisted.internet import reactor, protocol
   from twisted.protocols.memcache import MemCacheProtocol, DEFAULT_PORT
   d = protocol.ClientCreator(reactor, MemCacheProtocol
       ).connectTCP("localhost", DEFAULT_PORT)
   def doSomething(proto):
       # Here you call the memcache operations
       return proto.set("mykey", "a lot of data")

All the operations of the memcache protocol are present, but MemCacheProtocol.set and MemCacheProtocol.get are the more important.

See http://code.sixapart.com/svn/memcached/trunk/server/doc/protocol.txt for more information about the protocol.
